HTML5 A Programming Language Or Not by Tim1212(m): 11:53am On May 22
I have been a scientist and senior software engineer @ diib Nigeria for over 7 years now.

I made my research @ diib Nigeria Research Laboratory,
and have discovered so many mysterious technology behind HTML.

Html is programming language, provided it's a sequence of code that performs a task.
HTML is classified under a Markup Language, because it format how a content should appear on a web browser.

Research showed that HTML is used to create a web document that appear on the web.

MOST app on your smartphone are web document, because they access the internet through already installed default web browser on the device.

The app is a shortcut to access the web, using URL on the web browser..


HTML can be used to develop desktop applications or mobile applications compatible on any device.


HTML does not have limitation in regard to programming.
@ DNRL we have experimented creating software that run on smartphones and desktops using HTML.

MOST folks in Africa, focus on learning programming languages without making research how this language was originally created or developed.

Creating a website using HTML , is the process of developing a software that can run on the web as well as run on Operating Systems.

Examples Facebook, Google, Amazon websites are examples of software that run on the web.

Let's make this trend interesting by contributing your experience here.

How long before people come to terms with anything ML isnt a development language.

ML means markup language.

Same as XML isn't a development language

Many of you just want to belong by force.


HTML, XML are markup languages.

CSS is a sheet styling language.

They are languages but not programming languages. You need to give a programming language a trial to know the real difference.

HTML is not a programming language. It is a markup language. It tells browsers how to structure a web page. Just because it has opening and closing tags doesn't make it a programming language.
Re: HTML5 A Programming Language Or Not by Maskyy(m): 5:48pm On May 22
What are the key terms of programming language?

Is script language also a programming language?
Is mark up language also a programming language?
Is styling language also a programming language?

Practically speaking a programming language is a sequence of instruction given to a computer to perform a specific task.

Provided it's an instruction, it's a programming language

Programming language can be classified into so many categories.
We have Markup language, low level language, high level language , scripting language and machine language.

Software like messager app on smartphones is a web document. Which use the default Web browser on the device to communicate to server.

Research shows that from our laboratory.

Most software applications on smartphones and desktops are web document.

Programming language is more of a research project.
Don't depend on articles on the web.

Involve in a research work and you will discover so many mysterious behind technology.

The white people invest on research, while Africa depends on their work.

We really need scientist and engineer in programming languages, we can equally have our own too.

I really love research and development in programming.

Facebook app Twitter app, messager app are all web document, and HTML is use to develop web document, equally known as a web page.

That's main reason we should invest more on research than just believing one theory.

With out, web browser on the device, they will not function.

markup is a static layout used to display text, images, video. the webpage is a layout that is dynamic.

it can never be dynamic without a development language that fetches the data.


How old are you, if I may ask

HTML and CSS with functionality using javascript makes it a dynamic web page.

Let me clarify you. Javascript is dynamically typed because it does not require you to declare a variable with its data type.

C++, Java are static type, because you must specify the data type before you declare a variable.

HTML is simply used to develop a web document...

HTML doesn't perform arithmetic operations, no decision making, no algorithm. HTML is meant to structure contents, can HTML perform loop operations? Does HTML store or hold variables.

Wrong.
I've heard many experienced developers mock people who say HTML is a programming language, so I've had to do my own research as to what and what can be termed a programming language.
HTML falls in this category,the op is right. A quick Google search yielded this result.

Lool, if I have a site with good SEO, and create a topic that Anya Kyari was the president of Nigeria, what happens when you type Abba Kyari in Google search?

I encourage folks who makes research rather than believing in theory.

Thanks for your research work, you can join our Lab.

Maybe he meant web document. HTML was developed by Tim Berners-Lee in European Lab for Particle Physics in Geneva, Switzerland, in 1991.

Which was used to access documents on world wide web.
It was only limited to scientist and academics. That's main reason few engineer know more about the web and its components.

HTML5 even comes with few functions. However may not be recognized by older browser.
Javascript is now used to make it functional and more compatible with older browser.

Can html handle data on its own? No! This is the requirement for all languages to be called a programming language if it cannot process data then it is not a programming language. I can imagine asking Linus Torvalds or Edsger Djikstra this question, they will go absolutely mad.

The main thing self is can it process and manipulate data. Man this is crazy even if I create an interpreter for html how will I carry out operations, perform loops, send or receive data, open files.gringrin this is a joke of a question.

What is a programming language?
What is a computer?

If you can answer the questions then you will learn more.

Are you defining a computer or what?

Kindly understand the difference between a computer and a programming language

Name one programming language that does not manipulate data. Just one please. A computer without a programming language is useless, a CPU can only manipulate data because of the fact that it can execute code, I know a lot about computer architecture so I can tell you that what they taught you in school had flaws, okay Assembly (machine code actually) is what the computer understands so are you telling me that if I just dump 70kb of data on my hard drive and I don't instruct it to do anything it will just start processing the data the way I want?
